Advanced font development

The course deals with all aspects of developing an advanced typographic font for publication. It covers five topics that are usually excluded from more traditional typography courses: non-Latin scripts and non-standard characters in fonts, development and organisation of weights, development of programming and groups in OpenType format, unconventional production tools and typesetting for screens screen fonts design.

The course goes into depth and complements the contents of the Letter Design Course which is part of the Master's Degree in Advanced Typography, and the subject of digital font architecture in particular. The course is a response to the growing demand from highly trained students who cannot find content at these advanced levels in the courses currently available. This is an unique and outstanding course, which assumes that the introductory content on the font development has been acquired. The competences to be acquired are the professional completion of typographic fonts for both the development of families and formats, OpenType features and screen fonts.
